and suddenly a dream comes true

This is where it all began. . . . It started right here at the base of this majestic Leadwood Tree, this is the site where we decided to build our dream house, we now proudly introduce to you, “Leadwood”.

The leadwood is one of the largest trees in Africa, and is aptly named “leadwood” because the wood is extremely dense and heavy. It is also one of the only wood species that sinks in water. Our majestic leadwood tree is well over 500 years old. We really fell in love with it, and so therefore the name of our house was an obvious decision …

Marloth Park is a wildlife sanctuary situated on the southern boundary of the Kruger National Park. (Approximately 420 kilometers from Johannesburg). Marloth has its own wildlife and boasts four of the big five with the exception of elephant , however as the Crocodile River forms the boundary between Marloth Park and the Kruger National Park you are lightly to spot elephants playing in the river.

Buffalo , rhino and lion are confined to Marloth’s game reserve “Lionspruit” whereas the rest of the game such as Kudu , Zebra , Giraffe , Blue wildebeest , Nyala , Impala , Warthog and plenty more aren’t restricted by fences and roam freely between the units that are built on 1500 hectares.

With the dangerous game restricted you can take a walk along the river or a mountain bike ride on the various dirt roads. Marloth Park is a birder’s paradise with a phenomenal amount of bird species on offer.
